MET LIFE SHORT TERM and LONG TERM DISABILITY
Freelancers are at a greater risk of financial hardship in the face of injury or illness as they don’t have the staff employee benefits of paid sick days, maternity leave, or accrued vacation days to lean on if temporarily disabled, so the Plan provided free Short Term Disability insurance.
Receive Short Term Disability coverage of 60% of your pre-disability earnings up to $3,000 per week less any payment received from other sources like State Disability payments.
Receive Long Term Disability coverage of 60% of your pre-disability earnings up to $12,500 per month less any payment received from other sources like Social Security.
Take advantage of Met Life’s Employee Assistance Program, and get professional consultations on issue such as Marriage, Relationship, or Family Problems, Changes in Mood, Legal and Financial Issue, Alcohol and Drug Dependency, Identity Theft, Stress and Anxiety, Childcare and Eldercare Assistance and more.
If pregnant, contact Met Life prior to having your baby to make sure you have all the information you need. In General, Short Term Disability provides 6 weeks recovery for a regular delivery and 8 weeks coverage for a cesarean delivery contingent on your medical needs.
